Episode 13: Break Out of the Box! Do Better Online Presentations with guest Robert Kennedy III (RK3)

If you’re a great live speaker or trainer who struggles to present with equal confidence online, then this episode is for you – and if you aspire to have virtual meetings that engage and/or entertain, then you’ll want to listen closely, too!

My guest this week is Robert Kennedy III (aka RK3), a speaker, trainer, entrepreneur, and consultant who started his career in front of the world’s toughest crowd – teaching science to high school freshmen and seniors. #whoa

Now he heads Kennetik Kommunications, a leadership communications company that works with leaders who need to connect more effectively with their teams through business storytelling and deliver critical messages with confidence.

Robert has worked with AARP, Barnes & Noble, and Johnson & Johnson, and has been featured in media outlets online and off, and he’s joined us today to help you show up and shine online.

Listen in and learn: why high school teachers make great public speakers, what confidence really is (no, it isn’t something you’re born with), the shift that’s underway for live speakers and trainers, and what they need to know and do now to thrive during this pandemic … and more!

“Confidence is repetition. You’ve got to be willing to take a step and do it, and then do it again, and then do it again.” – Robert Kennedy III

    Awesome content, networking-training lessons from two pros. Thank you, Pam!

  • I love two points RK3 made. The first point was that you don’t have to to do it all or do it alone. The second point was that confidence is acquired through repetition. Thanks for the information.
